EU-Africa Summit Underway

first_imgEuropean Union and Africa are to shortly commence their fourth summit aimed at developing human capital through education and training, and creation of additional incentives for investment and job opportunities.The EU-Africa Summit will begins on April 2 to 3 2014 in Brussels under the theme, “Investing in People, Prosperity and Peace,” and building on the spirit of their 2007 joint strategy, European Union and Africa will discuss as equal partners how to deepen cooperation under these three areas.      The two continental groups are jointly committed to fostering human capital through education and training, creating incentives for investment, and finding ways of stimulating growth that will create jobs in particular for young people. They also work closely together for peace and security, which are prerequisites for prosperity and growth.The European Union will be represented by President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy and President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso. The summit will bring together the Heads of State and Government of the European Union and the African continent, together with the leaders of the EU and African Union institutions. A range of high-ranking international observers will also be associated.”Both Africa and the European Union will come together to address the challenges that each of our continent faces and the ones that face the world as a whole. The theme we have chosen addresses the everyday concerns of our citizens– their safety and security, their job prospects, and their future as families and individuals. I am looking forward to a summit that will further reinforce our partnership and contribute to improve the quality of hope ofour population “, said President Van Rompuy.President Barroso ahead of the meeting said: “Fulfilling the vision set out in the Joint Africa-EU Strategy, the summit will deepen our partnership of equals and seize further cooperation opportunities by expanding political, economic, investment and trade ties. This includes the pursuit of durable and sustainable economic growth generating jobs for all our citizens”.The summit between Africa and EU is very significant to Africa especially as EU is one great partner that provides funds for development in Africa.Of recent EU promised to commit billions of Euros for development in Africa.  The amount will impact various development initiatives in Africa including trade, investment, combating of drug trafficking, amongst others.While this summit goes on, Africans expect EU to come out with promises of committing funds to those areas of concern for the two-day summit in Brussels.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GPTWU threatens to take Govt to court over owed pension

first_img…says Finance Ministry must stop dragging feetAfter decades of waiting on monies owed to them by the Government as a result of the privatisation of the Guyana Telephone Company (GTC) back in 1990 to the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T), retired workers who were promised benefits are now taking the matter into their own hands and are ready to fight their war in the courtrooms.(From right) Executive member of the association, Lennox Skeete; President of GPTWU, Harold Shepherd and executive member of the Union, David WallaceThis move was signalled by the President of the Guyana Postal and Telecommunications Workers Unions (GPTWU), Harold Shepherd, during a press conference held on Tuesday at the Union’s office on East Street, Georgetown.In the presence of several retired workers, Shepherd said, “If we are forced to take this matter to court if it’s not resolved there [at the Finance Ministry], we are not only looking for the rightful pension but we will also be looking for retroactive payment on all outstanding amounts… if we have to go to court we will look at pain and suffering and all of those and the conditions that goes with all of that”.He noted that the Finance Ministry has been given until the end of this week to respond before they take the matter to the court.Asked by this publication whether the current political instability would deter them from this move, Shepherd responded in the negative. In fact, he explained that this matter is against the Government of Guyana, irrespective of which party rules. “We [are] not looking at party and politics, we are looking at a bread and butter issue. We don’t want to lose a next pensioner before they collect the rightful pension,” he explained.Executive member of the association, David Wallace pointed out the importance of these monies to the pensioners, explaining that most of these retired persons have become ill and cannot afford proper healthcare.“We are treated with scorn. Only an uncaring Government would not want to pay what is due to us. Many of us are sick and on special medication, many have died and the rest are still suffering with hope that they will be paid,” he said.The executive member added that the Government is continuing to paint a bad image of themselves to investors with this particular situation, as many may fear to invest in the country due to their fear of how they might be treated later on.Against this backdrop, the Union members have declared that the Finance Ministry must stop dragging its feet on this matter and find the monies owed to these pensioners within a two-month timeframe.When the GTC was privatised in 1990, the workers who stayed on under GTT were promised that they would be paid their benefits when they retired from the telecommunications giant – an Atlantic Tele-Network (ATN) majority-owned company – as if they were in the public service.However, those former GTC/GTT workers who retired after years of service under both companies are still trying to get their correct outstanding entitlement.Over the years, GTC/GTT pensioners received a mere $22,000 instead of a minimum of $90,000 or a maximum of $700,000 in accordance with their last salary base. According to the pensioners, although the Finance Ministry had adjusted the rates back in 2017, it was still inadequate to what they are actually entitled to.last_img read more

Man Utd fined, Jose warned over late Valencia kick-off

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho blamed the lack of a police escort for his side’s late arrival against Valencia © AFP / GREG BAKERLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 19 – Manchester United have been fined a total of Sh1.7mn (£13,200) by UEFA for the late kick-off to their Champions League match against Valencia earlier this month caused by the hosts being caught in traffic.UEFA’s disciplinary arm fined United Sh581,000 (5,000 euros) for the late arrival of the team bus, and a further Sh1.2mn (10,000 euros) for the late kick-off, while United manager Jose Mourinho was also warned over the delay. United arrived at Old Trafford less than 45 minutes before kick-off on October 2 and had to ask Slovenian referee Slavko Vincic to delay the start of the game by five minutes.Mourinho blamed the delay on local police for not providing an escort for United’s team bus, but police officials said the club knew well ahead of time no such service would be provided and had time to make the adequate arrangements.“We left the hotel at six o’clock, hoping that 30 minutes would be enough, which normally it is, but this time the police refused to do an escort so we came by ourselves,” said Mourinho after the match which ended in a 0-0 draw.“We took from the Lowry Hotel, 75 minutes and UEFA were nice, the referee was nice to allow us to start the game five minutes later because we at least need half an hour to be prepared, but it was not a problem with the club organisation.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

SINN FEIN TDs CONSULT HSE OVER NOWDOC CUTS

first_imgDonegal Sinn Féin Deputies Pearse Doherty and Pádraig Mac Lochlainn have stated that the NOWDOC, out of hours GP services in Donegal must be maintained.They were speaking after speaking to Donegal’s senior HSE managers, they said.They described any suggestion of the erosion of the existing services as “a red line issue” for the people of Donegal. In a joint statement, they said: “HSE managers John Hayes and Kieran Doherty have outlined their proposals to remove the NOWDOC receptionists based in Carndonagh, Gweedore,and Mountcharles from Monday to Thursday and redeploy them to other HSE work in Ballybofey.“The unions have opposed this and the issue is now before the Labour Relations Court.“If this proposal goes ahead, then the NOWDOC treatment centre in those three locations outside of Letterkenny will have to close when the doctor and driver on duty are called out. This is an erosion of the existing service and will clearly cause inconvenience to patients across rural Donegal.”They continued: “However, we also understand that the HSE management are considering further proposals to shut down the NOWDOC treatment centres outside of Letterkenny. “We have made it absolutely clear to the HSE managers that this is a red line issue for the people of Donegal. We will not accept people from very rural areas of Donegal having to travel long distances to Letterkenny or wait on a doctor call out from Letterkenny in the event of a medical emergency.“We are now publicly calling on HSE management to make it absolutely clear that the NOWDOC out of hours GP bases at Carndonagh, Gaoth Dobhair and Mountcharles will not be closed. The people of Donegal have accepted the compromise that was NOWDOC in order to take pressure of local GPs. We will not accept any further erosion of our essential health services.”SINN FEIN TDs CONSULT HSE OVER NOWDOC CUTS was last modified: October 23rd, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Deputy Pearse DohertyDONEGAL Deputy Padraig MacLochlainnSINN FEIN TDs CONSULT HSE OVER NOWDOC CUTSlast_img read more

HEARTACHE AS MOVILLE MINORS LOSE ULSTER FINAL IN DYING SECONDS

first_imgMOVILLE’S Minor Ladies did Donegal proud in their Ulster final showdown in Belfast today.The Foylesiders were involved in a superb clash with Sean O’Neill’s from Armagh in the provincial final stage by St Paul’s GAA club in Belfast.It was a fast and furious start with both sides hitting goals, but it was Moville who led at half time 2-12 to 3-06. And they added to that three point advantage to go 5-12 to 4-07 within ten minutes of the re-start.The Armagh club however came storming back, and reduced the deficit to 5-13 to 5-09 with five minutes to go.O’Neills closed in on their Donegal opponents with some ruthless finishing, adding another goal and four points without reply into injury time.The final score was 6-13 to 5-13, a goal was the difference. It will be hard to take for the Moville girls but they can come back to Donegal tonight with their heads high after a stunning display and giving a great display on behalf of Ladies Football in Donegal. HEARTACHE AS MOVILLE MINORS LOSE ULSTER FINAL IN DYING SECONDS was last modified: December 7th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:HEARTACHE AS MOVILLE MINORS LOSE ULSTER FINAL IN DYING SECONDSlast_img read more

Allan Ssewanyana: Where is Gov’t in Magogo’s corruption case?

first_img Tags: Allan SsewanyanaFifaFUFAJustus MugishaMinistry of Education and SportsMoses MagogotopWorld Cup 2014 Ssewanyana filled the petition against Magogo in 2017. (PHOTO/Courtesy)MAKINDYE – Makindye East Member of Parliament Allan Ssewanyana has expressed his dissatisfaction on how the Government of Uganda has handled the corruption case involving Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) president Moses Magogo.On Saturday, September 28th, Magogo came out and announced that he will be stepping aside to allow FIFA to investigate his case concerning the illegal sale of 177 FIFA World Cup 2014 tickets that were allocated to Uganda.In his speech during the annual FUFA General Assembly in Adjumani, Magogo claimed that he will be away from office for two months so as to allow FIFA conclude its investigations.Ssewanyana who filed the petition on 30th May 2017 to the FIFA Ethics and Integrity Committee, noted in a press briefing held at his offices in Makindye on Monday that he wants to know where the government of Uganda is regarding their investigates because he also lodged the matter to them..“I thank FIFA for closely following up with interest my petition implicating Magogo as having acted in breach of FIFA statutes, disciplinary code and articles 13, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 of the FIFA code of ethics that I sent,” said Ssewanyana on Monday.“However, allow me extend my dissatisfaction to the various organs of government that have failed to pick kin interest in this matter as an agent matter of national interest. The bodies – Ministry of Education and Sports & Criminal prosecutors – should update us about which stage are their investigations.“Government’s objective is to fight corruption, but they have taken years without giving us a response. This is not my personal case, and it’s not political.”Ssewanyana also added that it is a shame that pressure has come from FIFA while Uganda government is busy looking on.“Madam Janat Museveni, your Ministry should be the first body to fight for the integrity of sports in the country.“How will Ugandans be sure that money given out is received by the good hands if you can’t handle the petition to the dot?”It should be noted that for every FIFA World Cup tournament, a particular number of tickets is allocated to each federation prior to the championship.In Uganda’s case 177 tickets were allocated but none, according to Ssewanyana were sold to Ugandans.Magogo is alleged to have sold the tickets that were allocated to Uganda before the 2014 World Cup.Currently, FUFA vice president Justus Mugisha is the acting president of FUFA after Magogo stepped aside.Comments last_img read more

Donegal Mountain Rescue share checklist for hill walkers following Mount Errigal rescue

first_imgDonegal Mountain Rescue has shared a list of things to double-check before going walking on the hills this winter.On Friday Donegal Mountain Rescue was called to assist walkers in need of assistance on Mount Errigal in the midst of a Status Yellow ice-snow warning from Met Éireann. The walkers were located safe and well by the crew.The rescue crew is reminding people to ensure you have plenty of supplies before embarking on a trip, and to let people know where you are and what time to expect you to return by. First they say you should plan ahead, and be aware of the weather conditions. People should wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and bring plenty of food and water.“Have a compass and map – know how to use them. Have a head torch and flashlight, especially during the winter months,” a spokesperson for Donegal Mountain Rescue says.“A mobile device is not a flashlight, compass, and get out of jail card!“Share your route with friends and family, let your accommodation provider know your planned routes and your estimated time of arrival back to accommodation.“If you’re enjoying a pint or two afterwards, also let them know you’ll be home later than planned. “Leave your contact details and planned return date and time on your windscreen.“Have fun, enjoy the hills this winter season and be safe.”Donegal Mountain Rescue share checklist for hill walkers following Mount Errigal rescue was last modified: November 26th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal Mountain RescueHillssafetywalkingwinterlast_img read more
